A Healthy Child…

This legislative session, health care access is on the agenda.

When children are healthy, they are ready to learn. We know that uninsured children do not receive adequate preventive care and do not seek prompt treatment when they are ill.

Having a medical home ensures children receive routine dental, vision, and developmental screenings. Early identification of developmental or behavioral delays and illness is proven to save society money and produce better results for children.

That’s why it’s so important to ensure every Florida child has access to health care. The more we help children start strong, the better off we will all be in the long run.

Two things you can do today…
